EXPERIENCING NEW WAY OF LEARNING ENGLISH


Do you want to experience fun English learning? If so, you should visit the following sites. By visiting these sites, you will get a lot of printable and downloadable references, exercises, online and offline test, even software to help you to learn English. And the most important thing is: you get more experience to practice, train, and examine your English. Really, it’s very joyful.

    www.speaking24.com is a very good site to learn and practice our English. It provides options to us to choose in what level our English is (basic, intermediate, or advance). Then, we can decide to practice our English to chat in a chatting room. There are so many topics that can be discussed or discuss free topic in free chat room. People can have conversation through Yahoo! Messenger, skype, MSN, and ICQ, or direct (on-site) chat in that free chat room. Here, you will meet people from all around the world with different backgrounds, especially mother-tongue language. In this free chat room, you may “ignore” your grammar. Don’t worry, because there are so many people who have just started their English here. It’s really helpful to improve our English because there are so many online partners from many countries. Besides we can practice our English we can get new friends, more information and share knowledge, cultures, etc.
    www.speaking24.com also provide “word of the day” that will be sent to our e-mail address. Just register ourselves by submitting our e-mail address. It’s free and very useful.

Although the name of this site is containing word “store”, this site is not selling anything on it. It works as if it were a bank of exercises that can be downloaded to be learnt offline. Most of the downloadable files are in flash files. It means that you need a flash player in your computer if you want to collect the materials (of course, you need to have a computer first).

There are so many downloadable files and each exercise is grouped based on a category. For example: exercise about conjunction, exercise about conditional sentences, listening tests, English test for junior high school, etc. You can also get TOEIC and TOEFL samples here.
The only weakness of this site is the problem of downloading. You can’t do direct download, but you will be directed to “user agreement page” first. You need to agree to all rules before downloading (click OK then download will start automatically). It’s little bit time consuming. However, it is not a very big problem if we compare with result: get hundreds of free English exercises.

This site provides on-site English materials: English theories (grammar and structures), vocabularies, reading materials, games, and software to help you to learn English. There are also study tips and tests samples. If you are a teacher, you can join in teacher’s board and download printable materials in lessons area.

    Dear kadish,
    I got and have read all of yours. It’s very useful for me, but I would you like to send me the material for teaching speaking especially for a worker.

    My best regard,

      Hello, thanks for visiting. Until now, I haven’t had any experience related to teaching speaking for a worker. But I think, teaching workers is just the same as teaching non-workers. Maybe you just need to adjust the materials that will fit their needs. But of course, later, I will do my best to give you some ideas (or maybe suggestions) about teaching workers.

      Regards,
      Khadis
